Pearls & Pioneers Outlaw Bike Party

September 8, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$5 – $17
Gunnison Sunset

On the eve of the 49th annual Pearl Pass Tour-the ride where it all began-the museum is hosting a casual, happy hour-esque event from 5-7pm for riders and enthusiasts alike. This year, we are thrilled to have photographer and mountain biking pioneer Wende Cragg share stories and a slideshow of her rare and iconic photographs from the earliest days of mountain biking, including the 1978 Pearl Pass Tour. We’re also featuring a silent auction with some amazing prizes. Proceeds will support the museum as it works to keep the history and spirit of mountain biking alive and well.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
